Very scenic route to high mountain lake. Great place to spend a weekend exploring network of trails and historical sites, including well-preserved Conqueror Mine. One side trip goes to a small, serviceable cabin (see map for GPS coordinates). Trail connects to Red Elephant Hill, Empire Loop, Trail #62. Great area for ATVs and UTVs with plenty of parking at the start. The 2010 MVUM shows no seasonal closures.

We noticed new signage on the Empire Loop portion that refers to this as Mill Creek Loop.
